lot. in south boston, but the reality is some 600 plows have been out throughout the city all night trying to battle this blizzard. throughout the state, you've got about 4,000 pieces of equipment, the national guard numbering about 5,000, who are on the standby when the teeth of the storm hits. just about an hour or so from now. we blizzard like conditions, if you look up the street, you can barely see up the street. simply because you have this powdery like snow which is blowing all over the place and making things very difficult. i just want to give you an example of how cold it is here. in between live shots, i run to my truck which is being buried in the snow drift, but my photographing stays out so you can get live bumps, live pictures of what is going on. let me show you, hand that to my producer. this is hard. he's like the tin man out here. it's trying to -- thanks, bob, for doing that for us. bob the photographer, who is now literally frozen stiff. >> wow. >> you can see he's still out here shooting, giving us an idea of how cold it gets out here. >> amazing job that all o

, the storm center itself is in the vicinity of cape cod and from connecticut to long island. new york city is on the west edge of the most activity as far as snow is concerned and connecticut has the highest measurements right now with two feet of snow and as you can see on the radar, still blustering. >> as john was mentioning, the snow doesn't look like it wants to move out very fast. it has the potential to be a record-breaker. >> this morning 600 businesses and homes without power, the errant is closed. thousands of flights are grounded. james gray has more. >> the amount of snow across the northeast. in some areas including boston, accumulations could reach three feet or more. some of that snow pushed by winds of up to 75 miles an hour. a brutal combination creating dangerous blizzard conditions. the storm has literally stopped most of new england in its tracks. more than 1,800 cancellations at area airports and 4700 flights canceled nationwide. the governor of massachusetts today ordered all cars off the roadaway starting at 4:00 p.m. after this 19-car pileup in maine. scattered cars

heard from mike seidel in massachusetts. it's really bad there. it sounds like at least in new york city here, it may not be as bad as we thought it might get. >> yes. one little spot that didn't do so bad. we didn't think it would be historic in new york city, not like what we're seeing in hartford. we krnt goiweren't going to get points in connecticut like we were in rhode island and massachusetts. the wine gud gusts, the worst o, we saw the gust to 76 in boston, which is super impressive. i'm sure that did some damage all by itself. with the weight of the snow on the trees, i'm sure there's a lot of downed trees. i'm sure the power outages are doubling. here's a look at the storm. this looks almost like a huge hurricane. this is a big winter blizzard, call it a nor'easter if you want. we haven't had one location with three hours of visibility less than a quarter mile and winds above 35 miles per hour. that's the criteria. you need to meet both of those for three hours to be considered a blizzard. we've been close in areas like providence and boston but not quite yet. this isn't our wi
